School's back!!!!!

Yay.....School is back and at last I can hear myself think!

Don't get me wrong, I love my kids and all, but these holidays have been testing.
I know it doesn't help that I'm not well and we still have
no answers or solutions just yet but I am so over the
"drowning" noise of the play station and whose turn it is next!

So welcome back routine :o)
I missed you :o)

Would you like to see what I have done, sewing wise over the weekend?

I have cut all the fabrics for the remaining blocks for my
"Great Granny Squares" Quilt.
I am planning to make 16 blocks so three down and 13 to go.

I then made myself a Needle book with some of the scraps

to take with me to "Urban Stitches" - 5 more sleeps ... yippie

Then pieced and prepared the next two blocks for my
Merry Merry Snowman BOM
and added them to the pile of hand stitching projects I have next
to the couch

and after the kids left for school this morning and whilst Miss Lily was still asleep
I wrapped these ready to go out in the mail.

I'm off to grab a coffee and do some Blog hopping.



  1. I couldn't agree more. Love my kids in the holidays,
    One them when they're back at school too! Our Christmas quilt is gorgeous in French General, can't wait to see it finished. I might also pinch some of your wrapping ides if you don't mind. Nothing better than a gift that looks too good to open. Enjoy your quiet coffee.

  2. Sharon you have done well this weekend,lovely needlecase and how exciting Urban stitches,and boy how lovely do those parcels look.xx

  3. Wow Urban Stitches lucky girl!!! your soo productive!!! My kids are back tomorrow!!! Nice parcels, wonder who they are for :)

  4. cutting up the fabric always takes me quite a long time.. but it's great to get them all done.... the needlecase is great... urban stitches sounds like a lot of fun...

  5. we are just starting our 2nd week of hols here in WA - and i'm loving it! The needle book is very clever, and i just love the idea of having a hand-stitching pile next to the sofa, come to think of it I kinda do...

  6. You have had a busy weekend Sharon,like the little needle holder,and aren't you supposed to be resting Haha.
    I love that snowman Bom,keep thinking about it but I am already doing 3 boms.
    Take care
    Laura xx
